Elmley National Nature Reserve, Isle of Sheppey, Kent

Plans have recently been submitted for the renovation and extension of Kingshill Farmhouse, a Grade II listed building on the Elmley National Nature Reserve to provide tourism and residential facilities as part of the diversification of the business.
The main house, unoccupied for several years, is in urgent need of remedial work. The plans focus on retaining the original features as well as providing a sensitive ground floor extension and additional accommodation on the second floor.
A new building will be used for events and conferences as well as educational visits and overnight stays.
The site has a rich history; King James II, the son of Charles I was imprisoned here whilst trying to flee to France in 1688.
